Italian Montréal

Pointe-à-Callière, cité d'archéologie et d'histoire de Montréal, 350 place Royale, Old Montréal

Open in google map
Until January 9, 2022
Explore the rich heritage of Montréal’s Italian community, one of the oldest and largest immigrant cultural communities in Montréal.

The exhibition “Italian Montréal” traces the moving journey of hundreds of thousands of Italo-Montrealers from the early 20th century, when they arrived in Montréal in great masses, to the present day, when close to 280,000 residents describe themselves as Italo-Montrealers.

Listen to their stirring memories and observe invaluable family heirlooms—over 325 objects brought over from Italy or made here in memory of a life lived elsewhere are on display.

From the home to the café, through the train station, the commercial street, the church and also the public sphere, learn more about the lives of the first generations of immigrants and the Italian community’s remarkable contribution to Montréal life.
